Annual Call for Reporting from Global Partnership Initiatives

By Global Partnership

On 23 January, the Global Partnership for Effective Development Co-operation launched its annual call for reporting to all Global Partnership Initiatives (GPIs), which will be open through 23 February.

This annual exercise collects feedback from GPIs on their progress, activities and lessons learned and helps to identify results from country and regional-level efforts to implement the Busan Principles. It also presents an opportunity for GPIs to communicate their work to the wider Global Partnership audience and to explore opportunities for further partnership between themselves, the Global Partnership and other GPIs.

GPIs are voluntary initiatives led by different types of development actors, such as national governments, civil society organisations, trade unions, the private sector and others. They advance implementation of the development effectiveness principles and commitments agreed through the Busan Partnership Agreement (2011), the Mexico High Level Meeting Communiqué (2014) and the Nairobi Outcome Document (2016).

GPIs directly contribute to the Global Partnership’s vision by implementing commitments at the country and regional levels, and generating evidence, policy-relevant lessons and innovative solutions that can feed mutual accountability and learning into the Global Partnership.

There are currently 29 active GPIs supported by 58 organisations, with work spanning nine key areas, including promoting country ownership, a focus on results, inclusive partnerships and transparency and accountability, multi-dimensional measurements of poverty, conflict and fragility, resource mobilisation and climate finance.

GPI Focal Points are asked to submit inputs by 23 February to participate in the annual reporting. Questions may be addressed to the Joint Support Team at info@effectivecooperation.org.

The results of the annual reporting will be showcased on the Global Partnership website, at Steering Committee meetings and other Global Partnership events and will directly contribute to the Global Partnership’s efforts to share knowledge around effective development co-operation.
